Fox News recently investigated Moms Who Rave, an Instagram page dedicated to mothers who enjoy attending EDM festivals, concerts, and raves. The media outlet focused on investigating a 32-year-old woman named Nicole, who is also a mother of two. Nicole runs the New York City-based spin-off Instagram group momswhorave. Nicole justified going to raves as “normal adult life” by comparing shows to couples vacations, girls night out, and other activities spent away from the kids.
Of course many have the concern of drugs being present in the scene, and Fox questioned whether or not it was possible to be responsible at shows. Nicole admitted to doing drugs on occasion, with the thought that it's better to rave responsibly. She stated that the momswhoravenyc page was originally started to promote safe raving and responsibility for mothers who want to attend EDM events. Fox News also interviewed a ER physician named Dr. Robert Glatter, who argued that moms attending these events set a negative example for their children because of the late nights and possible drug use.
Nicole finished by saying that while attending these events probably isn't the best way for a mother to blow off steam and socialize, it’s not the most dangerous activity to engage in if she stays responsible. For many this is an extremely controversial subject, but for many dedicated music fans, the possibility of surrendering the scene once motherhood hits is not an option. Should parents be allowed to rave, or is there an expiration date for music fans across the world?
